The idea behind roof replacement pretty much follows an “out with the old, in with the new” concept, taking out faulty roofing to make way for a brand-new roof. However, there are actually instances where you don’t have to do this, such as when you have old asphalt shingles and are interested in getting metal roofing as a replacement.
Why You Can and Should Do a Roof-Over
Metal roofing is lightweight so you don’t have to worry about excessive heft when installing it over an old asphalt shingle roof. It is in fact so lightweight that the total weight of a roof with metal and asphalt shingle layers will probably be less than what the original asphalt shingle roof weighed when it was installed.
It Will Save You Money
Another reason to install metal roofing over asphalt shingles is to save on costs. Tearing off an old roof adds to the overall cost of your roof replacement project. So, doing away with it can help you enjoy some savings from your roofer that you can direct toward other home improvement projects, if you wish.
It’s Environmentally Friendly
Lastly, doing a roof-over is a green building practice. If you’re looking to do your bit for the environment, you’ll like this because it will help you limit trash in landfills while also bumping up your roof’s overall thermal resistance, contributing toward increasing energy efficiency in the home.
